Alrighty! welcome to organization week…remember two weeks past (or maybe it was 3 weeks on sytyc the theme was organization..? well. I made one thing..
them made another….
Then made another. Don’t ask why I went all hog crazy. but the three things are all pretty similar in tutorials…they all use plastic…they all have binding…(and on top of that I had a project saved since before christmas in case I couldn’t come up with anything)
SO…first up is the craft organizer:
(you will need this tutorial for again so remember it!)
now, some of you mentioned you were scared of sewing with the plastic vinly stuff….never fear! i had zero no problems with it. (but i find this great pinterest pin hint about sewing with it…
okay. to start..i literally gathered all the craft stuff that i wanted included in…and laid it out…then i cut strips of vinyl to size and added a strip of the binding to the top…and pinned them in place where i wanted them…..
each piece as a little gathered area so the pockets hold a little more….
this will just make the opening wider (you won’t want to do this on you ruler..or pens…but bigger and bulky things…)
i got it all laid out…and pinned on…and sewed (it should go without saying..but i will say it anyways..make sure NOT to sew the top opening!
then i rolled over the top an inch and half and sewed…
That row of Sharpies makes me extremely happy. (Love the organizer, too.)

I am so in love with this! The bright colors are so cheery and I am so jealous of how organized it all is! Must make something like this to contain all of my stuff.

This is awesome! I love it! And the colors are so fun 🙂
Such a great organization tool.
Fabulous!!! I love it..I use plastic shoe organizers to hold my crafty crap
Excellent and detailed tutorial! I can see lots of applications for this – thanks so much for sharing!
Love your big yellow purse and voted for it. Also, the organizer is great and thanks so much for the instructions.
I just LOVE this. It is so amazing. I have been looking for ways to store all my craft stuff neatly (being a craft whore AND an organization nut has gotta be the worst combination of traits out there) and now I can! SO glad I found this tutorial on pinterest! 🙂
